    Had to beat UGA and Referees

    My hats off to a Bama team that had to beat a very good UGA team as well as a the officials. The picture of Lacy breaking the plain with ball on another post. Here it is if you haven't seen it.

    Plus the phantom tipped pass that was clearly not tipped. The flight of the ball was not altered at all. That cost Bama at least a field goal and led directly to seven for UGA. Mosley was pulled down by a UGA offensive lineman on one of UGA's rushing TD's. I also saw Jesse Williams get grabbed and completely spun around on one of UGA's long pass plays he had a direct line to QB and then was facing the other way being pulled backwards by his shirt.

    I have to say I have been frustrated with this defense a little this season, but after last night I have to say that I have been wrong about them. They may not be as polished as the 2011 defense, but they are scrappy and had to handle a very good UGA offense with the refs giving everything to the Dawgs. My hats off to them for making the plays they had to to win the game. I think this may be Saban's best coaching job to get this young team to the "Big Game".

    Re: Had to beat UGA and Referees

    I don't know, referees get heat in most games, but most commonly from the losing team. I could cavil a couple of calls, but given that humans are fallible I'd say they did a good job. The untipped pass was annoying, I thought Lacy probably scored (but the evidence was not conclusive) but there probably was good evidence that forward progress was stopped. We possibly dodged a bullet on the gigantic hit on Murray during the int return.

    Pretty sure there was also a missed block in the back on the blocked field goal return. Just glad we pulled it out.

    Yes we won, but some things just can't be let go in a game like this when you are mounting a two front fight. Thankfully, our D shut UGA down at the end. I was waiting for tom ritter to blow his whistle saying bama called time out before the play or something or uga had a phantom play giving them one more shot at the endzone. . Thankfully it ended with the clock running out

    that PI that was flagged when Norwood got mugged from behind... oh that was the phantom tipped ball. Ya the Refs are tiredof Bama. I believe we may have the same issue against Notre Dame as well.

    I did notice some bad calls like the no call block in the back (can't remember if it lead to any points for GA but still), and the unsportsmanlike conduct where it clearly showed the GA sticking his fingers in our guys face. Overall, I think they did okay. Glad none of these cost us.

    There are always calls in every game at every level that were missed or made incorrectly. To assume that grown men who do this for a living are conspiring just against us simply makes no sense, imo.

    On uGa's last drive when their receiver went down with the "injury" I thought since they didn't have any timeouts that time was suppose to be ran of the clock. Am I wrong on that?

    I thought the same thing as well but no one came on the field from the sidelines and I believe he was up and off the field before the ball was set and in play again.

    As I said in another thread, I thought it was a very well officiated game with the exception of the replay booth. That tipped pass? Should have been reviewed. Could have been reviewed. That's the point of replay. You got a ref making a call based on a tenth of a second. If he got it wrong, fix it.
